Madurai Style Chicken Kuzhambu

Quiet a long, i have nt posted non vegetarian dishes..I prepared this chicken kuzhambu sterday after a long and this kuzhambu is really different and fabulous which suits marvellously with hot rice..This kuzhambu tastes exactly wat madurai peoples serve hot with parathas,chappathis and for briyanis.. Chicken kuzhambu have so many versions and variations according to each regions of India, i love the chettinadu version of non vegetarian dishes which tastes hot and spicy while this madurai style chicken kuzhambu tastes very flavourful and hot as this kuzhambu was tempered with sesame oil..I learned this dish from my friend who is from Madurai and we enjoyed this lip smacking chicken kuzhambu with hot rice and papads and we loved it...
